North Carolina Attorneys
Aviation and aerospace manufacturing play a large role in North Carolina’s economic success. The Tar Heel state is a blend of culture, history and aerospace research and development. The state’s 34 state parks, 14 national parks and the Appalachian Mountains attract hikers and outdoor enthusiasts from all over the country. The Outer Banks on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean attracts millions of visitors each year. Its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean makes it a valuable asset to the U.S. Coast Guard — one of the busiest air stations is located in Elizabeth City.
General aviation is an important way for North Carolina residents and visitors to travel around the state. Helicopter tours and single-engine planes around the Outer Banks are a great way to travel, especially with experienced pilots. As pilots themselves, the attorneys at Slack & Davis provide first-class legal representation. For more than 20 years, Slack & Davis L.L.P. has helped airplane crash survivors and families dealing with the loss of a loved one. Contact Slack & Davis for a free case evaluation at 800-455-8686.
